There's no question that there are at least a few terrible movie sequels that are released every year, but which movies do you hope never get a sequel? Some of these movies came out over 20 years ago, but nothing is safe from the terrible sequel treatment in this day and age. For example, the atrocious Dumber and Dumber To was released 20 years after 1994's Dumb and Dumber, and to many it tarnished the legacy of the original film. The films below are movies we hope never get a sequel, including comedies, action movies, dramas and more.
